Justin kept back some of his best holstien hiefers and crossed them with black angus and hereford bulls. The mix is "black baldie" brood cows. Addition of the holstien gave them more milk for the calf and a bigger frame. Good mix for a brood cow, generally. Holstien aren't quite as thrifty as some of the european breeds. Small polled heads typical of angus breeds mean ease of birth. Cross this cow with a purebred red angus bull, add lots of mother's milk and all the corn you can eat.They grow all summer in the sun, and the following spring this baby is usda choice and ready for market.
